About This Project

Woman of Strength Necklace Project

Have you ever thought about what your name means and how it suits you? It is that time again, my birthday! So I thought I would make something that is me! Karla means strong or womanly strength which I do believe describes me well! So a combination of a few of my favorites, gunmetal, turquoise and asymmetry! Hand beaded Czech Glass chain and other Czech glass beads in turquoise combined with the heavy gunmetal chain makes a strong statement!

  1. Using two pairs of chain nose pliers, open a jump ring and slip the ends of the Czech Glass Chain and the Gunmetal Chain onto it and close.
  2. Open another jump ring and add it to the jump ring containing the chains and add the loop part of the toggle clasp and close.
  3. Add another jump ring to the free ends of the chains.
  4. Since we are going to bead into this end, add a gunmetal split to the last jump ring.
  5. Cut a piece of beading wire 12" in length and crimp one end into the split ring added above, using the Magical Crimp Forming tool.
  6. String the following: rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle, wavy square, rondelle, gm round, rondelle.
  7. Crimp the end into the bar of the toggle.
  8. For it to be Karla...wear it asymmetrically with the toggle at the side!

5 Stars
great necklace
I love the use of metals and gem strands. I really like that the clasp is in the front and that it goes from multi-strand to single strand so effortlessly. This is an inspiration piece that can be done so quick and easy with ton of color possibilities.
